Description/Abstract

This paper discusses ways in which the environment in which data are released affects data quality. Using the example of the release of open government data into an information market populated by open data, a basic assumption of open data, that eyeballs (i.e. widespread scrutiny by a large and diverse population) will help ensure and improve quality, is examined. A case study of data about crime and criminal justice is used to show that various pressures, including the important aim of fostering a user community for the information, can distort the information markets which are the basis for that assumption
